A Message from the Minister of Finance

Fighting climate change provides an opportunity to transform and propel the Québec economy forward so that it can serve tomorrow’s markets.

Through our second budget, we will create more wealth by building a green economy, focusing on our economy’s electrification.

At the same time, we will continue our efforts to provide Quebecers with quality services that meet their needs.

Today, I want to say to all Quebecers: this is your budget, the budget for your future.
